The Reader’s Christmas Gift Guide

Written by The Reader, 14th November 2018

Christmas is coming and if you'd like to give a gift that gives a little something back, look no further than The Reader's Christmas cards and anthologies available now in our online shop.

"The rooms were very still while the pages were softly turned and the winter sunshine crept in to touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting."

Louise May Alcott, Little Women

Christmas Cards

If you're contemplating this year's festive greetings, we're delighted to share the designs for our new Christmas Cards, which are available for pre-order on The Reader website.

  • Pre-order a pack of 10x cards (5x each design) for only £5.00
  • A limited number of our 2017 Christmas Cards are also available at a discounted price of £2.00 for a pack of 5x cards.

Don't forget! Last post for delivery before Christmas is Tuesday 18 December 2018!


Whoever you're book-buying for this Christmas, give the gift of Shared Reading. Our A Little, Aloud anthologies are specially designed to be read aloud with loved ones - whether you're visiting someone in hospital, inspiring a little one to read more or devoting some time to a significant other.

  • The Reader's A Little, Aloud anthologies are available online at £12.99
  • The Reader's Minted, Poets Don't Lie and On Active Service anthologies are available online at £6.00

If you'd prefer to listen along to a festive tale this Christmas, our special A Christmas Carol audiobook is also available as a digital download.


Become a Reader Friend

When you gift a Reader Friend membership to a loved one, not only do you give them access the exclusive benefits, you'll also be supporting The Reader's charitable work.

Reader Friends receive a warm welcome pack including a tote bag and an anthology and throughout their year of membership, they will receive invites to special events and exclusive creative projects. They'll also enjoy discounts at The Reader Cafe, Ice Cream Parlour and Storybarn at Calderstones Park.

All proceeds from purchases made on The Reader's online shop support our charitable work across the UK. Thank you for supporting The Reader!
